MOUNT VERNON – City police have made another arrest in the August 15, 2021 shootout on the streets of Mount Vernon. The arrest was made by Mount Vernon detectives and Special Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) on Tuesday, September 21.
Police say the arrest of 39-year-old Mount Vernon resident Warren Glover, stems from the August shooting. Glover was taken into custody at his home without incident on federal charges of being a Felon in Possession of a Firearm.
The investigation began on August 15, 2021, when members of the Mount Vernon Police Department heard
gunshots in the area of South 1st Avenue and East 3rd Street and then observed parties running from the area. At that time one person, a 22-year-old, Mount Vernon resident, was arrested after fleeing on foot from the scene with a firearm.
Shortly after the first arrest was made, police were notified by personnel at Montefiore Mount Vernon hospital that a person had just arrived with a gunshot wound. This person, later identified as Robert Culton, was later transferred to Jacobi Medical Center for treatment of a gunshot wound to his left side buttocks. Through investigation, it was determined that Culton was in possession of a firearm at the time of the incident and had fired the weapon. Culton was arrested and charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon and Reckless Endangerment.
Glover was identified by police as the person that was shooting at Culton from a video obtained around the scene.
Mount Vernon Police notified the ATF due to Glover’s criminal history and a joint effort was made to locate and apprehend him.
